Kunena 5.2 Beta 1 Released (Yesterday)

The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the first public beta release of Kunena 5.2, a native Joomla extension for Joomla 3.9. This is a development release and should be only be used for testing; this version is not recommended for live websites at this stage.

The purpose of this release is to encourage testing by downloading, installing and identifying any problems or shortcomings that people may discover. K 5.2.0 B1 is stable and we are aware that people will discover defects. We encourage you to use the forum to report defects, as soon as they are discovered, so that the development team can work through the problems before the release of K 5.1 as a stable product. Reporting defects does not mean that the problems can or will be fixed. The Kunena team is looking forward to hearing your feedback on how well we have achieved our design goals.

× This is for users to help other users, to discuss topics that relate to migrating from other web-based forums and converting the data into a form that will operate with Kunena.

It is important to note that the Kunena team does not have a standard, recommended or supported protocol for these ideas and that posting questions in this category may not receive advice from team members.

1. install Kuena and Kuenaimporter on a 1.5.25 joomla

2. run importer (/forum or other relative phpbb3)

3. check that the forum is migrated etc.

4. Jupgrade the site to a new /directory

5. Finished

6. move the database entries to an existing joomla 1.7 installation that have the Kuena installed ?
export database xxx_kuena_xxxx entries, and import them to (replace). There might be some db entries that is re-installed when u go in the administrator panel and go to Kuena and it fails and u click install. The Installation says u have one already ..

Then u export all _kuena entries, delete frew ones, and remove the space in front of the DB-extentions u want (that has content).

It was done in a jiffy.

Both Kunena and importer works in Joomla 1.7. You just need to disable a user plugin in Joomla 1.7 to prevent it from sending emails to everyone.
